Personal data are available data pertaining to You personally as our customer or third parties, such as name, e-mail, address, user behaviour and IP address.

The processing of personal data takes place exclusively on a statutory basis and, insofar as no such laws exist for the specific processing, with your consent as the data subject concerned.

In some cases we use external service providers to process your data (“processors”). These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are contractually bound by data processing agreements, are subject to our directives and are regularly checked.

a) Scope of the processing of personal data when You visit our website for informational purposes

In the case of merely informational use of our website, we only collect the personal data that your browser transfers to our server. We collect the following data, which are technically necessary for us to display our website to You as a (potential) customer and to ensure its stability and security:

We collect and use this data exclusively in non-personal form during your informational visit. This is done to enable the use of the internet pages You have accessed (connection establishment), to permanently guarantee system security and stability, to enable the technical administration of the IT infrastructure, for statistical purposes and to improve our website and our services. Your IP address will only be evaluated for attacks on the network infrastructure and for statistical purposes, without any conclusions about your person being possible. In addition, we use cookies when You visit our website.

The aforementioned data will not be stored together with other personal data of yours.

The legal basis for the above processing is: Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on the purposes listed above for data collection. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.

In the context of the send procedure, your consent is obtained and You are referred to this privacy statement in order for the data to be processed.

In the case of contact via the e-mail address specified on our website, your e-mail address and any further personal data submitted by You are stored and processed to answer your inquiry.

The aforementioned data will not be stored together with other personal data of yours.

The legal basis for the above processing is: Art 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR (contact form) and Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR (e-mail contact). Our legitimate interest results from the processing of the message you sent to us.

d) Scope of processing of personal data when you subscribe to our newsletter

In the event of subscribing to our newsletter, the recognisable data of the input mask of our subscription form are collected and processed for our own purposes. In this context, we collect the following data in order to process your inquiry:

In the context of the subscription, your consent is obtained (Art 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR) and You are referred to this privacy statement in order for the above data to be processed.

Subscription to our newsletter follows a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means, that after registration You will receive an e-mail asking You to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can log-in with other e-mail addresses. Subscriptions to the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP-address.

The registration procedure is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. We want to provide a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both - our business interests and the expectations of users and also allows us to provide proof of consent.

Sending of our newsletter and the performance measurement associated with it is based on the Your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a, Art. 7 GDPR in conjunction with § 7 (2) No. 3 German Fair Trade Practices Act (UWG) or on the basis of the legal permission pursuant to § 7 (3) UWG.

You may cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. by revoking your consent. You will find a link to unsubscribe from our newsletter at the end of each newsletter. We may store unsubscribed e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete, in order to be able to prove a previously given consent. The processing of these data is limited to the purpose of a possible defence against claims.

An individual application to unsubscribe is possible at any time, provided that at the same time the former existence of a consent is confirmed. Please use the e-mail address indicated in sec. 8 of this privacy policy.

Our newsletter is sent out with the e-mail service provider "MailChimp", a newsletter delivery platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The data protection regulations of MailChimp can be viewed at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.

The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to currently comply with the European data protection level. Membership can be looked up here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.

MailChimp is used on the basis of our legitimate interests according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR and within the scope of Art. 28 (3) GDPR (Order Processing).

MailChimp may use recipient’s data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients for contacting them or to pass the data on to third parties.

Our newsletters contain a so-called "Web-Beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file which is downloaded from our server when the newsletter is opened or, as we use MailChimp, from its server. When the Web-Beacon is being retrieved, certain technical information, such as Your browser type and Your operating system, as well as Your IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected.

This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked upon. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the recipient. However, it is neither our endeavour, nor MailChimp´s endeavour to observe individual recipients. The evaluations help us to recognize the reading habits of our newsletter recipients, to adapt our contents accordingly or to send different contents according to the interests evaluated.

e) Use of cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user's computer system. If a user visits a website, a cookie can be stored on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string that uniquely identifies the browser when the website is revisited.

f) Web analytics services

For the purpose of needs-oriented design and ongoing optimization of our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter "Google").

Google Analytics uses cookies and created pseudonymized usage profiles to enable analysis of Your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie regarding Your use of this website (such as browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer and time of the server request) are generally sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Because IP anonymization (IP masking) is activated on this website, your IP address is first truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

On behalf of us as the operator of the website, Google shall use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activities and provide further services relating to website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted from your browser within the context of Google shall not be combined with other data by Google. The information may be forwarded to third parties, provided that this is required by law or insofar as such third parties process the information on a contract basis.

Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is based on an analysis of Your user behaviour in order to optimise both our website and its advertising.

You can prevent the saving of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software; however, we would point out that You may then be unable to fully use all functions of this website. You can also prevent the capture of data generated by the cookie pertaining to Your use of the site (including your abbreviated IP address) by Google and the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the available browser deactivation add-on from the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Further information is available in the Google privacy statement: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the affected person are generally deleted or disabled as soon as the purpose of storage expires.

Furthermore, storage may also occur if so required by European or national law under European Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the Responsible Body is subject.

Blocking or deletion of data is carried out even if a storage period specified by the standards referred to expires unless there is a need for further storage of the data in order to conclude or execute a contract.
